Hendrickje Schimmel

Tenant Of Culture is an entity that merges fashion with installation. Created by Hendrickje Schimmel, Tenant Of Culture refers to the position of the artist as “cultural post-producer rather than autonomous creator by translating textual theories of montage to a materialist reality”. Schimmel’s work focuses on the institutional archive and surrounding themes such as preservation, decay and cultural hierarchy. She transforms objects by viewing them as scientific or archival, and seeing how people respond to this change, often using square and rectangular shapes to represent the classic form of display.
